    First Topic – Craigslist Crack-Down?

    South Carolina's top prosecutor is calling on Craigslist to take down ads about prostitution. Attorney General Henry McMaster said Craigslist needs to do more to combat postings that either advertise or solicit prostitution. Last year, he and attorneys general from dozens of other states entered into an agreement with Craigslist to improve the Web site's safeguards. Apparently they have not done enough to satisfy the AG. He joins us to explain the problem and his legal approach.

    Second Topic – Obama to be prayer day no-show

    President Obama is distancing himself from the National Day of Prayer by nixing a formal early morning service and not attending a large Catholic prayer breakfast the next morning. All Mr. Obama will do for the National Day of Prayer, which is tomorrow, is sign a proclamation honoring the day, which originated in 1952 when Congress set aside the first Thursday in May for the observance. Jim Moore brings together hundreds of prayers composed largely by Americans from all walks of life to create an unparalleled and comprehensive collection of “home-grown” expressions of spirituality and religious conviction. We look at a history of prayer in America.
